Thousands of new teachers inducted at UAE schools
Gems Education will be welcoming 1,800 new teachers on Thursday
Thousands of teachers will be inducted into their new roles at schools across the country this week.
Schools will reopen for the new term next week and teachers from around the world are undergoing training before children return to the classrooms.
On Monday, Aldar Academies inducted 650 new teachers — who will be working across 18 schools — in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain.
Gems Education is due to induct 1,800 new teachers on Thursday in Dubai.
The new teachers were selected after a global recruitment drive.
Mohamed Al Mubarak, chairman of Aldar Education, received the new recruits during an induction event in Abu Dhabi on Monday.
“There are no great schools without great teachers, and we look forward to building our network of educators and showcasing the incredible dedication and hard work we see day in, day out, across the teaching profession within Aldar Education," said Mr Al Mubarak.
School developer Taaleem will induct around 535 new staff for the academic year 2019-20, marking the largest number of new recruits in a single year for the Taaleem group of schools.
"The opportunity to network with other new joiners and our senior leadership team during our induction days, sets the tone for their new experience and helps reassure new joiners, many new to the UAE, that help is always at hand," said Gavin Walford‑Wright, chief human resources officer at Taaleem.
During induction days, teachers are able to build on their knowledge about their career prospects at the school. They are also informed about professional development programmes available to them.
